I am going to make a bold assumption as I write this:
The reason you are here and reading this and somehow touched by The Revelation Project is because you are someone who believes in, honors, or respects the belief that there is a spiritual purpose for our journey here on earth.
Is that too bold? Well… I don’t know what you believe in, and would never judge your beliefs whether you call “it”- great spirit, Christ, higher power, God, creator…. it’s all good, I think we are on the same page here.
So – with that said, I am a lover of boiling things down to their “essence.”
How I relate to the world has everything to do with how deeply I understand and then function out of the knowledge that I am not separate, and that each action I take or word I say comes from one of two places… LOVE or FEAR.
I believe that I was born into the world with the “essence” of LOVE, and that FEAR was something i learned along the way.
If the essence of my being is LOVE then it’s also helpful to remember that everyone else is of that same essence.
If the two base emotions in this world are love and fear than all that does not originate from love is born as a result of fear. Sounds obvious, but stay with me, and also read what a course in miracles has to say:
“Love holds no grievances. When I hold a grievance, I am forgetting What I am. I am attacking my Self. Today I am willing to practice recognizing grievances for what they are and handing them over to the Light so that they can be undone. I am willing to focus on this practice today.
Since Love created me like Itself, and Love holds no grievances, judgment is never justified. Any time I judge, it is because I have denied What I am. I have denied my Self. It is only by Self denial that I could believe that it is possible to judge. The bodies eyes were made as instruments of judgment. They show me only differences and I have learned to label these differences. I see a shape defined by differences and I call it a piano or a tree. This instrument, designed to show me differences, was made to make the illusion of separation appear real. This is denial of my Self as Love created me.”
As life gets rolling along it becomes harder and harder to distinguish our “operating system” until we stop and look. The Revelation Project is a mechanism and tool for taking a look.
At TRP one of the area’s we try to expose and explore is the illusion that as individual women, we are separate, or different. Yes… we photograph each woman as a way of showing her own unique and inherent beauty, but we also make claim that this is true of each and every woman everywhere and that we are all SISTERS who are unified in this way. In our blogging of her experience and her story as part of TRP we are also inviting you to see yourself. We invite you to look into her eyes, and her image, and see yourself.
TRP makes the claim that inside each of us is our ORIGIN and our most powerful essence- LOVE. We work at exposing the limitations that keep us from it, and that create the illusion that honors fear. Once we break this barrier- then all that’s left is love of self. Love of SOURCE.
Once you have truly accessed that love for yourself – can you truly LOVE another and dispel operating from a place of FEAR or experiencing others from a place of fear.
It’s in this LAND where we can experience the joy of connecting in Love with all that we are and all that IS. In this place all conflict disappears. Now, what’s possible, is the ability experience another woman as sister. Should we choose to exercise this knowledge and cultivate that function – than what we do is create MORE.
MORE love can heal the world of it’s infliction: fear.
It’s the elixer, the remedy, the antidote, and YOU can make all the difference.
We invite you to SEE yourself as the SOURCE of love.
